GradFellowsSympOn Monday, December 12, join the Kenan Graduate Fellows for their year-end symposium, to be held in the Ahmadieh Conference Room between 2:30pm-6:30pm. This year’s theme is: Scholarship and Practice.

The 2:30-5:00pm session will focus on linkages between scholarship and work beyond the ivory tower. Current Graduate Fellows will present about some aspect of their scholarship, their work outside of the academy, and/or the connection between the two.

From 5:15-6:30pm, a roundtable discussion will feature the presenters along with Kenan Senior Fellow and Professor of Theological Ethics at the Duke Divinity School Luke Bretherton.

This Keynote Lecture by Gayle Salamon will explore the case of Latisha King, a genderScreen Shot 2016-11-28 at 3.39.44 PM-transgressive 15-year-old who was shot and killed in an Oxnard, California junior high school by a 14-year-old classmate in 2008. Salamon will offer a phenomenological reading of the school and the courtroom to explore the paradoxical nature of gender and race in this legal case, in which gender was simultaneously treated as a material object and understood as the effect of immaterial bodily gesture. This event is co-Sponsored by the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics.
